Wiring in new headlights

Got some new headlights for my 03. ( like super bees) They have a led tube in them which has a red and black wire for hookup. I used the hot and negative from park lights to power them. After a short trip and restarting my truck the red lightning bolt in my dash came on and was in limp mode. Was wondering if the wiring could cause this or coincidence ?

Glad to hear you have the light tubes wiring fixed by connecting them to the side marker lights wiring.

Wasn’t dark yet but was impossible for me to get a pic when dark out. Lights were too bright. So at dusk.....
